    Hi guys,
    I have a One, but I think this problem could affect a wild range of devices, if not Android as a whole.
    I searched about this problem, but I could not find a solution and now I'm asking for your help.

    When Android cannot connect to a WiFi network, appears "connection error" in light gray under the name of the network, where usually appears "connected", and does not try to connect again.

    Is there a setting somewhere to tell Android to keep trying to connect?

    Usually when I arrive to my house, it detects Wifi when I'm still very far, does not succed to connect (obviously) and then does not try to connect again.

    If I click "connect" manually when I am at home, it connects in a second.

    What can I do?

    I don't think there's a specific setting, but you can turn off/turn on WiFi and it should reconnect within a few seconds

    Yes it does, but the problem is annoying...
    I wonder why Android developers thought that if a connection to a wifi network fails, it is a good thing do not try to reconnect again...
